The Bhils today have no answer to their food woes like other marginal farmers around the world. The multinational corporations controlling commercial agricultural from inputs to the food reaching the dining table, too, do not have any answers to this problem busy as they are in ensuring more and more profits rather than food security. Matters have been compounded by Financial companies speculating on the global agricultural commodity futures markets to bolster their profits which have been threatened by the downturn in the other financial security markets.
There has to be a radical re-orientation of agriculture and our food habits and this will only be possible if we also think of re-orienting the industry and the economy. Unless there is a move away from profit making in general there is very little chance of establishing bio-diverse organic agriculture and ensuring local food and nutrition security.
